You should go with rock wells. You'll be plenty wide enough to not have to lift into up into the land of big gay trucks

^^ comming from a guy who just welded my whole truck with no gloves and barely wore a shield. a full face shield would be nice tho for grinding. i hot hit so many times with sparks and hot metal. but if you dont have one... o well. and my stomach is all burnt from holding things upside down while zach welds

I like those 46's...I eventually want to get mine up on some big meats...maybe your the right person to talk to :)

I'd like to see mine on 40's. Then I can still DD it and tow and hit the mud every once and a while...along with that will be a 4.0 and manual/manual tcase convo.

If your up to it after your project I may need some help with mine. if money is all it takes...i got plenty :)
